Why I came to the Academy: "I came to the Academy because it has always been my dream. I've always wanted to be a pilot and have strived for years to come here. Finally on a clear path to becoming a pilot is a great feeling. Having the opportunity to play baseball at this level is unbelievable."
My plans for the future: "When I graduate after these long four years, I would like to go on to pilot training. I'd like to fly the F-15, or the F-35 right out of pilot training, and possibly move up to the F-22. I intend on staying several years past the required number and upon retirement (from the Air Force) become a commercial pilot."
